Avenham Park rock gardensPhotos have been discovered of Avenham & Miller Park during the Victorian era.


The pictures show the original rock gardens, performances in the park and will help park keepers restore the park to its Victorian glory. There are just over 60 photos in all. The photos show that some of the park’s layout has hardly changed at all over time.

The photos were posted on the City Council’s Park Keepers blog.
